Co-parenting after Separation
I work with families in Lewes and Brighton who are needing help with the issues surrounding co-parenting after separation and divorce
My ex and I cannot agree on when he/she should see the children
This can be fraught with potential for conflict, it's likely that there are other unresolved issues for you, which make managing this more difficult.
Talking this through can help move the obstacles.
We have different rules and expectations and the children play us off against each other
Did you agree previously, if so what has changed?
Co-parenting after divorce and separation is about starting a collaborative relationship as parents. It can be hard to make this transition especially if the separation has been difficult and painful or when one party moves on. Sometimes a parenting plan agreed in therapy can help with ground rules .
